Please join us for a presentation by Amy Brunsvold. Dr. Brunsvold is the Centre Manager and leads a large scale carbon capture and storage project for the Norwegian CCS Research Centre. She received her PhD in experimental physical chemistry from MSU.
CCS in Norway: Research and Industry Working Together
CO2 Capture and Storage (CCS) is a crucial tool in the toolbox of required technologies that must be implemented in order to reach our ambitious climate goals. The Norwegian government has the ambitious goal to realize a full-scale CCS chain by 2022.
The newly-launched research centre funded under the Centres for Environmentally, Norwegian CCS Research Centre (NCCS) will enable fast-track CCS deployment through industry-driven science-based innovation while addressing the major barriers identified within demonstration and industry projects. NCCS aims to become a world-leading CCS centre and supporting the Norwegian government in their quest for large-scale CCS.
NCCS comprises international oil and gas companies, CCS technology vendors and technology users in the private and public domain. The partnership will provide access to state-of-the-art laboratories and research facilities and advanced simulation tools that will be expanded and complemented in NCCS.
NCCS will focus on two industry-driven deployment cases to provide consistent, targeted research in areas that will contribute most significantly to large-scale CCS deployment: (1) CCS for Norwegian Industry and (2) Storing CO2 from Europe in the North Sea.
Dr. Brunsvold is currently the Centre Manager for the Norwegian CCS Research Centre, NCCS, hosted by SINTEF Energy Research in Trondheim, Norway. She has a PhD in experimental physical chemistry from Montana State University and was a post-doctoral fellow at UC Berkeley and Lawrence Berkeley National Lab. She is a Research Scientist at SINTEF Energy Research and has been involved in CCS-related R&D since 2009.
